To get your kids involved, it's a good idea to start by doing yoga with them. This doesn't require that you enroll in expensive classes, however. There are many resources that you can explore at home. Below is a list of my favorites. Books, Cd's, websites, and videos. Check them out and have fun!
Bersma, D. & Visscher, M. (2003) Yoga Games for Children. Alameda, CA: Hunter House Inc.
Solis, S. (2006). Storytime Yoga. Boulder, CO: The Mythic Yoga Studio.
Tummers, N. (2009). Teaching Yoga for Life. Champaign, IL: Human Kinetics.
Wenig, M. (2003). Yoga kids: Edcuating the whole child through yoga. New York, NY: Stewart, Tabori, & Chang.
Once engaged in Yoga practice, try exploring those classes in your area. You can enroll in classes with your children, or register them for an independent class. Find what works for you and your family. The benefits will be great!
